Comment of the Week
You’re usually way out in front but my 13-year-old son actually beat you to it this time. He, like most his age, is an avid Youtube watcher and has recently gotten into watching the ways of searing the perfect steak.
He’s been hammering me to get a cast iron skillet. Lol.
If it were up to him we’d eat steak every night.
Gotta say, of the obsessions I’d want my 13-year-old son to have, the perfect sear on a Steak works for me!”
